Winning concerts with young classical players.
Danish Chamber Players' autumn offers a large number of concerts for children and young people. One of the most important tasks the ensemble has is that children and young people encounter classical music and have some great sensory experiences when the music plays.
This week, the young winners of the regional competition Unge Spiller Klassisk themselves are playing as soloists with the ensemble. There were around 100 children from all over Region Zealand and Bornholm who entered the competition in the spring, where 2 of the Danish Chamber Players' members together with the pianist Rikke Sandberg were judges. It is very motivating for the young music school students of all ages to have a goal like the competition to practice towards. The competition takes place in a cozy atmosphere and everyone gets a statement afterwards, so they know what to focus on next time and what the judges thought was good about their game.
8 lucky participants will now have the opportunity to try to play their solo pieces with an entire ensemble behind them. It gives a very special rush and a musical wow experience. It's also a fun concert for other music school students and their families to hear, because it's always inspiring to hear someone your own age that you can look up to.
The concerts are free and take place:
at 11.00: Vordingborg School of Music, Sydhavnsvej, 4760 Vordingborg
at 16.00: Jakobskirken, Astersvej 11, 4000 Roskilde
at 19.00: Festival hall Sorø Akademi, Akademigrunden, 4180 Sorø
at 19.00: Kultunariet, Søndergade 12, 4690 Haslev

Children's opera about Darwin on school tour.
In October, the Danish Chamber Players go on tour to schools in all 6 municipalities in the Storstrøm Cultural Region with the children's opera "Kan Orme Høre".
It is a newly written opera for children in 3rd and 4th grade, which describes the great scientist Charles Darwin's fascination with the life of earthworms and their importance to nature. In the performance, Darwin interacts with the ensemble's instruments, and conducts exciting sound experiments, which are described in the exuberant music. It's about the children using their senses and experiencing something completely new, and they are really good at what the ensemble experienced last year when the opera premiered. "The children are immediate and don't have so many expectations", says ensemble manager Maj Kullberg, "they are good at opening their senses and just experiencing".

Family concerts about Beethoven.
The ensemble also has concerts aimed at families with children, who can have a pleasant and probably also educational experience together about the music. At 2 family performances in KUMUS on 8 October, you can experience the popular actor Jens Andersen in the role of Beethoven, when the whole family is invited to a one-hour theater concert that tells about the old composer's life with humor and wit and Beethoven's dramatic music . It is free for citizens of Guldborgsund as part of the municipality's Culture Pass.
